Circular oak wood frame.

Post by ARworx » Sun 25 Feb, 2018 5:45 pm

Hello all,

I would like to share some of the mouldings i make,

Being a joiner and a carpenter gives me ability to make my own moulding, and i love to do what can't be done usually in standard framing.

Most clients complain that they can't find a solid wood circular frame and it was the trigger for this idea.

I make it 4, 5 or 7 pieces for this size depends on client request, internal diameter is 23 CM
Width 3 CM and depth is 2.2 CM


This one is in the workshop as a sample while the final product will look better, and last photo is for a mosaic wall clock i made but missing the clock machine in the photo, and it's 4 CM thickness.

Hope to receive your critique and comments :)

I was asked just last week if I can make a round tray frame but for 1m Diameter, I said I could be done but not by me and it would cost big £££.

I agree it will cost a lot especially in the UK,

I'm from Jordan so prices is different and depend on the kind of wood and finish.

But i can tell that this method is the best way for solid wood circular or oval frames but the joint will be different if it's wide diameter like 1 M

Glad you like it :clap:
